Matthew had to write his first essay for school. It was to be on his favorite saint, and he chose his namesake, St. Matthew the Evangelist. It’s only six short sentences so I’m going to reproduce it here.
My Favorite Saint
St. Matthew started as a tax collector and he was a sinner. Tax collectors took a lot of money from people. Then Jesus talked to him and he became good. He became an apostle and Jesus’ disciple. He wrote one of the Gospels. His feast day is September 21.
